HRC FedUp! Delivers Petitions to Drop Case against SCI Dallas Prisoners
On December 2nd, members of HRC FedUp! traveled to the Luzerne County Courthouse to deliver 250 petition signatures to District Attorney Salavantis asking her to drop riot charges against 5 PA prisoners colloquially named the Dallas 5. FedUp! members held signs and handed out flyers for a few hours and then delivered petitions to the DA's secretary. Members were asked to move from the steps and told by court security that there were rules governing picketing during trials. The trial for the Dallas 5 is set to begin next Monday.
This week, Shandre Delaney is interviewed on the Legacy of a Nation radio show about the case. Listen Here!
